This is another big cosmic event of the year! Venus stations retrograde in the sign of Leo until September 3. Venus is the planet of love, relationships, beauty, money, and the things we value. As it stations retrograde, all of these topics rise up to the surface to be looked at and dealt with, especially if there are issues that need attending to. Venus in Leo is a fun, playful, and social energy, so while there is some hard work involved here, it hopefully will feel a little more lighthearted! Leo is a very heart-centered placement, so we can be almost certain that all of us will go through some sort of heart awakening during this period. In order to awaken and open our hearts on a deeper level, something will have to be cleansed and removed. We may have to make some hard decisions, or perhaps we may find ourselves moving through some painful realizations, especially when it comes to our relationships and how we choose to operate within them.
